STORY TIME IS BACK AT THE LIBRARY! YAY!!!

September's theme is PIRATES! Our theme for the third week of September is Happy Pirates!

Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, songs, crafts, and other fun activities. Library Story Time incorporates the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read. Story Times are designed for children 3-5 years old, though all ages are welcome. The program lasts approximately 45 minutes and caregivers are asked to participate with their children. Story Time is held in the Children's Department. This fall, Story Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Tuesdays at 10 am (see below for details).

book coverToday's Story Time: Happy pirates are good to have around! Today we will read a story about a jolly pirate and make a parrot craft. 

Today's Book: Roger the Jolly Pirate by Brett Helquist
Book Synopsis: Roger is too jolly to be a pirate. He does not scowl, growl, or strike fear into sailors' hearts like his pirate friends. So poor Roger is sent away whenever there is any real pirating to be done. While his shipmates face their toughest enemy, Roger has a chance to prove himself in a most unlikely way after being banished, as usual, below decks during the fighting.
